Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

    Enjoying Being Here Because: Every activity is open to any and every person who would like to participate, no matter whether it is related to your major or not--no matter whether you are a full-time student or part-time, no matter your age. That means that a Accounting major could get the lead in the play, an Bio-Chem double major could be the star of the softball team, & a Vocal Music major could be the college bowl team captain. Same goes for student politics, publications, & social organizations. That means I end up making friends with every kind of personality & outlook. (But if a recruiter asks, I claim that I am trying to expand my horizons by trying things I've never done before in life & find out what I like.) Most of these activities are free, too!

    I learned a lot of valuable life and social skills from attending Eureka and joining a sorority. I would not have succeeded in my internships and grad school interviews without them.
